Everything new in the Windows 10 April 2019 update



  A Windows 10 desktop with the update in April 2019's new theme theme

Windows 10's next update is the April 2019 update, which is version 1903 and was coded 19h1 under development. It has a bright theme, quick improvements and lots of polish. There are no crazy new features like My People or Timeline.

This article contains everything new as Insider Preview build 1

8323, released on January 24, 2019.

Fast Enhancements (thanks to better spectrums)

The news of Specter shook the industry in early 2018. Specter is a design flaw in the CPUs and it allows the applications to escape their constraints and read other program spaces. Microsoft patched Windows to help block Specter attacks, but the resulting patches reduced computer performance in some scenarios, especially on 2015 and earlier computers, which do not have the CPU features needed to speed up the fix.

Now, a change in the update in April 2019 seems to virtually eliminate these performance penalties and increase your PC backup. Specifically, Microsoft enables "retpoline" and "import optimization." All you need to know is that your computer will be faster, and you don't even have to think about it. But here is a detailed document from Microsoft explaining how these optimizations work if you are interested in the details.

7GB of computer storage space reserved for updates

  Settings showing reserved storage
Microsoft [19659007] Windows Update cannot be installed properly if the computer does not have enough free disk space. This can be a problem on low cost devices with only a small amount of built-in storage.

Microsoft solves the problem by commanding about 7 GB of your computer's storage and making it "reserved storage". This space is used for Windows updates, but programs can also store temporary files here. When Windows needs space for updates, the temporary files are deleted and the update is performed. So much space is not completely wasted, because files that would normally have used space on your computer are just in the reserved memory.

The exact amount of storage space used depends on the optional features and languages ​​you have installed, but Windows 10 Coming Soon "Reserve" 7 GB of your storage storage

Home users can now pause updates , for!

  Windows Update update page with paused

Microsoft says it is "[made] the Pause Update feature easier to find" by placing it directly on the main settings> Update and Security> Windows Update page.

But that's not all. Microsoft did not officially announce this, but the Break Updates feature now works on home versions of Windows 10. Home users can now pause updates for up to seven days. It is a good feature if you need a temporary delay from updates. However, as in the Professional version of Windows 10, Windows Update will immediately search for and install updates after it does not work. Windows 10 Professional users can still pause updates for up to 35 days at a time.

A light desktop theme

  Windows 10's new bright theme
Microsoft

Windows 10 now has a shiny new light theme. The Start menu, Taskbar, Messages, Activity Center sidewall, Print dialog, and other interface elements can now be light instead of dark. Windows 10's latest update also includes a new standard desktop wallpaper that matches the new theme.

Technically, Windows 10 now has two separate options: Windows mode and app mode. The old standard theme that combines a dark taskbar (dark Windows mode) with light apps (light app mode) is still an option. You can choose any combination of the two settings.

The icon for File Explorer has been tweaked to get a little brighter colors, and it now looks better with the new light.

Windows Sandbox for professional users

  Windows Sandbox

Windows 10 now has a built-in "Windows Sandbox" . That's all we've always wanted: an integrated, isolated desktop environment where you can run software in a container without affecting your host operating system. When you close the Sandbox, all programs and files in the sandbox are deleted. It uses hardware-based virtualization to keep the software limited to one container, just like Microsoft's Hyper-V.

The sand cartridge is only available on Windows, so domestic workers have to pay to upgrade [19659000]] How to use Windows 10's new sandbox (for sure to try programs)

A lesser-dialed default boot menu

  April 2019 Update New Default Start Menu Layout

Microsoft cleans the default Start menu. The default menu is now just a single column and is much easier. Yes, it's not perfect, and it still has Candy Crush Saga – but at least the game is buried in a "Play" folder.

You will not see these changes on an existing computer. But when you start using a new computer or start using a new user account on your current computer, you see a cleaner Start menu.

You can also loosen the standard groups of plates faster if you prefer a cleaner Start menu. With Windows you can now open groups of plates by right-clicking on them and selecting the "Delete group from start" option. You do not need to remove plates one by one anymore.

Windows 10 lets you uninstall more built-in apps [19659049] Context menu from an app tablet in the Windows 10 Start menu " width = "650" height = "288" src = "/ pagespeed_static / 1.JiBnMqyl6S.gif" onload = "pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon (this);" onerror = "this.onerror = null; pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon ( this); "/>

If you want to uninstall more built-in apps completely, you can now. Windows 10 always lets you uninstall some built-in apps like Solitaire, My Office and Skype, but now you can also uninstall built-in apps like 3D Viewer, Groove Music, Mail, Paint 3D and more.

This does not extend to all apps. There is still no way to remove the Edge browser or Store app, for example, but you can remove most apps .

Cortana and the search bar separates

  Cortana and the search bar is separated on the taskbar

Windows 10 has a search field integrated with Cortana, but they differ. In the April 2019 update, the search bar functions as a regular search box, and there is a separate Cortana icon on the Windows taskbar. You can leave the search box on the taskbar and hide the Cortana icon or hide the search box and leave Cortana. Of course you can hide both.

The search interface has a new startup design and it includes options like "All", "Apps", "Documents", "Email" and "Web" when you click it. This differs from previous versions of Windows 10, which showed Cortana when you clicked the box and waited for you to write a search to present these options.

Unfortunately, the usual Windows search bar still integrates online search results with Bing, so it not only searches your computer. There are also several options – you can also disable SafeSearch for results in the search bar, and Windows displays adult content previews for some reason.

But this points in an interesting way forward and a decrease in relevance of Cortana-now allows you to leave the search bar on the taskbar and disable the Cortana icon and place Alexa in place.

  New taskbar for file search on Windows 10 1903

Start menu search box becomes much more useful! The File Search function in the Start menu can now search for files anywhere on your computer using the Windows search index. In earlier versions of Windows 10, it only searched for libraries such as documents, downloads, music, pictures and videos, and your desktop. The search will still be fast thanks to the index.

This is an elegant solution and makes much sense. Windows Search Indexer has been around for a long time and was always ignored by the Windows 10 Start menu for some reason, but Microsoft has finally seen the light. You can configure which sites are indexed and search from Settings.

To enable this, go to Settings> Search> Search Windows and select "Enhanced (Recommended)" to make the index unit search your entire computer. The "Classic" indexing mode, which only searches your libraries and desks, is still available as an option. You can also customize search locations to select the exact folders indexed by Windows.

Redeemable login

  Reset PIN dialog on the Windows welcome screen
Microsoft

Microsoft seeks "a world without password". You can now create a Microsoft account without a password online. That account is linked to your phone number and Microsoft will write a security code when you try to log in.

In the latest version of Windows 10, you can now log on to Windows 10 with these password-free accounts and set up a PIN or other Windows logon feature to secure your computer. The account has no password you must ever write.

Of course, this is not mandatory. It's just a new, optional type of account you don't need to create.

A system tray icon for Windows Update

 ] Windows Update icon in the notification area

Windows Update now has an icon for the notification area (system tray) for updates. You can go to Settings> Update and Security> Windows Update> Advanced Options and enable "View a notification when your computer requires a restart to complete the update" to enable it.

Once you have done so, you will see a Windows Update icon with an orange dot in your taskbar's notification area when you need to restart your computer for updates. It is a nicer way to be warned of a necessary restart than a full-screen message; It is certainly.

A new update name scheme (for now)

<img class = "wp-image-393346 size-full" data -pagespeed-lazy-src = "https://www.howtogeek.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/ximg_5bd9f059756ee.jpg.pagespeed.gp+jp+jw+pj+ws+js+rj+rp+ rw + ri + cp + md.ic.FFgd3QyGkU.jpg "alt =" Captain America shield over a Windows 10 desktop background [19659085] Vankherson / Shutterstock.com

Microsoft continues to change the Windows 10 update name scheme. The October 2018 update is called Redstone 5 under development, and the previous four were also "Redstone" editions with different numbers. To make things even easier, the April 2019 update was named 19H1, as it was scheduled to be released in the first half 2019.

It sounds simple, except that Microsoft has already abandoned the new naming system and will change after The releases after 19H1 are reported to be coded "Vanadium" and "Vibranium", as the Windows 10 team customizes the name with the Azure team.

Zoom (and more) in the console

  Experimental terminal settings in PowerShell

Windows 10- The console now lets you zoom in and out. Just hold the Ctrl key and scroll with the mouse or trackpad. With the standard Consolas fonts, the text in the console dares to look good and doesn't look pixelated, no matter how much you zoom in. The image aspect ratio remains the same so the text will not attack on different lines. [19659003] There are also some new experimental console features that you can customize. Right-click any console window on the title list, select "Properties" and click the "Terminal" tab to find them. For example, you can configure the text input cursor color and shape.

More automatic troubleshooting

  Troubleshooting options in Settings

Windows has had troubleshooters for a while but you have to know what kind of problem your computer had and then navigate to the right debugger. Now you can only navigate to Settings> Update and Security> Troubleshoot. You will see a list of recommended debugging tools that Windows believes can fix your problem.

In fact, Windows is now trying to fix some problems in the background now. Here's what Microsoft says about it:

Microsoft can automatically fix some critical issues on your Windows device to keep it running. For example, we can automatically restore default settings for critical services, adjust feature settings to match your hardware configuration, or make other specific changes required for Windows to work normally. Critical troubleshooting occurs automatically and cannot be turned off.

Windows can also perform recommended background troubleshooting. To check if this happens, go to Settings> Privacy> Diagnostics and Feedback. Under Recommended Troubleshooting, select "Ask Me Before Fixing Problems", "Tell Me When Problems are Solved" or "Fix My Problems Without Asking. By default, Windows 10 is set to ask.

Messages Hidden In Full Screen Applications [19659097] Focus Assistance in Action Center ” width=”650″ height=”300″ src=”/pagespeed_static/1.JiBnMqyl6S.gif” onload=”pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon(this);” onerror=”this.onerror=null;pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon(this);”/>

The next update of Windows 10 can also hide messages while watching videos or using any other full-screen app thanks to an improvement in Focus Assist. Focus Assist can already hide notifications while playing one completely screen game, but now it can work when you use any app, whether it's a video player, a full screen or a web browser after you press F11.

Notebook Enhancements, Again

  Notepad Showing New Features in 19H1

Yes, Microsoft is still working on notebooks – even after all the improvements back in the October 2018 update.

Microsoft has also made changes to how notebooks handle encodings. The status bar now shows the encoding for the open document. The notepad can now save files in UTF-8 format without a Byte order mark, which is now standard. This makes Notepad more compatible with the web, where UTF-8 is standard and it is also backward compatible with traditional ASCII.

Notes will now have an asterisk in the title bar when the current file has been changed and not saved. For example, if you work with a file named Example.txt and make some changes, the title list will say "* Example.txt" until you save the file.

New shortcuts are also available. Press Ctrl + Shift + N to open a new Notepad window, Ctrl + Shift + S to open the Save As or Ctrl + W dialog box to close the current Notepad window. Notepads can now also save files with a path longer than 260 characters if you set a larger MAX_PATH on your system.

There is also a new Help> Send Feedback option that opens the Feedback hub in the Notepad category so you can give feedback to Microsoft.

Previously, this was required using the control panel. Go to Settings> Network and Internet> Ethernet, click your Ethernet connection name and click "Edit" under IP Settings to find these options.

 Active hours in Settings

Windows Update has had "Active Hours" since the anniversary update. You can tell Windows when you use the computer and it does not automatically start the computer during these hours.

For example, besides the threats detected by the Windows Defender antivirus program, blocks that are initiated by controlled folder access are also displayed.

 Security Protection in Windows Security

Windows Security now also has a new "Tamper Protection" option. When enabled, this setting protects important security settings. For example, it limits changes to many of the options governed by the Windows Security app, unless you open the app and make the changes. This prevents programs from changing them in the background. To enable this setting, go to Windows Security> Virus and Threat Protection> Virus and Threat Settings.

 Set Default tab in the Windows 10 Tool Manager

You can set a default tab in the Task Manager. This tab opens when you start the task manager. To do so, use the option> Set Default Tab in Task Manager.

To find this option, open Task Manager, click the Details tab, right-click the headings at the top of the list, click "Select Columns", select "DPI Awareness" from the list and click "OK." [19659003] Microsoft also activates the "Fix Scaling for Apps" option by default. This helps to fix blur applications on high DPI screens. This has been added to Windows 10 again in the April 2018 update, but Microsoft by default left it disabled as conservative.

 Windows 10 Acrylic Background Welcome Screen

The login screen now has an "acrylic" background to interfere with Microsoft's new "Fluent Design System". Previously, it had more of a blur – that is another visual effect.

Considering floating design, Microsoft also adds shadows to Microsoft Edge's context menus and other parts of the operating system.

Even more changes!

There are always many new changes in these Windows 10 buildings. Even this is not a complete list! But here are some more:

  • App Updates : Various apps included in Windows have been updated, as usual. For example, the Snip & Sketch app has several options for working with screenshots, including the ability to add a limit to them and print them. It can now take delayed screenshots on a timer and screenshots of individual windows as well. Sticky Notes 3.0 is available, and it finally syncs your notes between computers. The Mail and Calendar app now has a navigation button to open Microsoft To-Do. The game bar has a built-in gallery so you can see display screenshots and video clips, right from the Game Bar interface. The Office app has been redesigned to be based on the new Office.com experience. It helps you start Office apps on your computer, install those that are not and find recently used Office documents.
  • Cortana + Microsoft to do : Cortana now adds reminders and tasks to lists in Microsoft To-Do. So when you say that Cortana will add milk to your grocery store, you will see that milk appears on the "Grocery store" list in the Microsoft To-Do app.
  • Consistent display brightness : The brightness of your monitor does not change automatically when you connect it to a charger. Previously, you have lowered the screen brightness and it can be brighter when you connect it. Now it will automatically remember your desired brightness – even when you connect it.
  • Download folder sorting : Windows 10 The download folder will be sorted by "latest" by default, which adds the most recently downloaded folders at the top. This has always been an option, but it was not standard. If you have selected a default sorting method, your existing setting will not change.
  • Disc Cleanup Warning : The Disk Cleanup Tool now displays a warning when you click the "Downloads" option, warning that this is
  • Windows Update Reboots : Windows Update can now restart the computer immediately after installation of updates instead of waiting for a more comfortable time. This is an optional setting that you can enable if you want, and Windows Update will be more watchable by default.
  • Start Menu Reliability Improvements: The Start menu becomes more reliable. The start was previously part of the ShellExperienceHost.exe process but is now its own process: StartMenuExperienceHost.exe. If a problem occurs with the main ShellExperienceHost.exe process, the Start menu should still be responsive. This also makes it easier for Microsoft to troubleshoot problems with the Start menu.
  • Native RAW Support : Microsoft adds built-in RAW image format support often used by professional photographers to Windows 10. Open the Microsoft Store and install the "Raw Image Extension" package to use it. This makes it possible to use thumbnails, previews and metadata of RAW files in File Explorer. You can also view RAW images in apps like Photos after installing the package.
  • Fonts management in settings : Fonts management is improved. You can now drag and drop font files on the Settings> Fonts page to install them. You can click a font on this page to display its fonts and details or uninstall a font from here. (This installs the font for a single user. To install the entire system, right-click a font file normally and select "Install for all users.")
  • Clipboard history Redesign : The clipboard history viewer is returned in the October 2018 update has a new one, more compact design. Press Windows + V to open it.
  • Streamlined PIN Restored : When you log on to Windows 10 with a PIN code, you can click on the "I Forget My PIN Code" link and you will see a new, streamlined Reset Your PIN code directly from the welcome screen.

  • Windows subsystem for Linux : Windows Subsystem för Linuxs WSL-kommandoradsverktyg har nu nya alternativ, inklusive - import och - exportera alternativ för import och export av Linux-distributioner med hjälp av tjärarkivfiler. Microsoft konsoliderar också saker – kommandot wsl innehåller nu alternativ från kommandot wslconfig och Microsoft planerar att bara uppdatera kommandot wsl med kommandoradsalternativ i framtiden.
  • FLS Slot Limit Increase : Microsoft hämtade Windows 10: s FLS (Fiber Local Storage) spårfördelningsgräns. Detta är särskilt användbart för musiker, som kommer att kunna ladda mer unika plugins till sina DAW-enheter (digitala ljud arbetsstationer.) Detta kommer också att hjälpa någon annan applikation som vill ladda hundratals eller tusentals unika DLL-filer.
  • Förstärkare förbättringar : Författaren har en funktion "Läs efter mening" som du kan instruera att läsa nuvarande, nästa och föregående meningar. Berättaren fungerar också bättre med Google Chrome, vilket är meningsfullt, eftersom Microsoft Edge en dag kommer att baseras på Chromium, den open source-programvaran som ligger till grund för Google Chrome. Berättaren kommer nu att varna dig om Caps Lock-tangenten är på när du börjar skriva.
  • Återställ den här PC Redesign : Gränssnittet "Återställ det här datorn" som återställer datorn till dess ursprungliga tillstånd, har redesignats lite, och det har också ett nytt "Narrator Home" -gränssnitt som visas när du aktiverar Narrator.
  • Insiderinställningar Redesign : Inställningarna för Windows Insider i Inställningar> Uppdatering & Säkerhet> Windows Insider Program har också blivit strömlinjeformade och förenklat, men alla samma alternativ finns fortfarande kvar.
  • ] Ljud i anmälningsområdet stannar detsamma : I tidigare Insider-byggnader av 19H1 experimenterade Microsoft med att låta ikonen för ljudikonen öppna Ljud-sidan i inställningsappen. This change has been reverted, and the option in the volume icon’s context menu will now open the classic desktop volume mixer window.
  • My People: Microsoft may kill Windows 10’s “My People” feature at some point, but this hasn’t been officially confirmed.

Other new features include support for additional languages throughout the operating system. For example, SwiftKey’s typing intelligence now supports languages like English (Canada), French (Canada), Portuguese (Portugal), and Spanish (United States). If you write in Vietnamese, the touch keyboard now supports Vietnamese Telex and Number-key based (VNI) keyboards. Windows now also contains an Ebrima font that supports ADLaM documents and web pages, which is the language of the Fulani people, who predominantly live in West Africa.
